Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong yesterday (Mar 18) inspected the Phuket Historical Park at 2:45pm together with Vice Governors Snith Sriwihok and Prakob Wongmaneerung, Acting Chief of the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation (PPAO, or OrBorJor) Watcharin Patomwatthanapong, Thalang District Chief Adul Chootong, Phuket office of Public Works and Town & Country Planning Department (DPT-Phuket) Chief Tawee Homhuan, Chief of Phuket Cultural Office Uthai Pattanapichai, Chief of the Phuket Provincial Office of Tourism and Sports Sirawee Waloh and others.

Gov Norraphat said, “The Phuket Historical Park will be developed to be a cultural floating market to support tourism as well as to generate local income. Relevant government offices will be responsible for developing this area.

This floating market will be connected with marine tourism and local tourism in order to push this market as a new Phuket landmark,” Gov Norraphat said.

Water and electric systems will be installed and there will be a covered walkway along with car park, toilets and food stalls.

“The floating market will be held every Saturday and will feature local foods and products. The local way of life will also be featured via cultural shows,” Gov Norraphat explained.

“Moreover, the Songkran Festival this year will be held on April 11-15 at the Phuket Historical Park. Religious ceremonies and pouring of scented water on the hands of revered elders will be part of the festival.

“Local products and cultural shows will be presented to carry on Thailand’s beautiful tradition,” Gov Norraphat added.

Obviously, they haven't learnt the lesson of the abysmal failure of the Kathu floating market.

I agree with Foot's first sentence.

Real floating markets exist because it's the best way to get goods and food to the area.  They then became tourist attractions.
This "floating market" is purely a tourist attraction.  Why would a local actually go there to buy supplies?  It will probably be a huge money pit once built, benefiting only those involved in it's creation.
Phuket has shown little interest in the tour...

Announcing something new?
How about first things first? Have Beach Lifeguards.
Have clean beaches, no sick making beach and water pollution at all the beaches.
And remove that stupid Surin waste waterplant monument. It is thai loosing face making. 
Inhabitants and tourists find that monument a disgrace.
How much was the budget for it, and how much did it cost to build?
